>Handprint Keepsakes


They do not stay little forever so when I saw this idea I had to capture my childrens handprints

You need:
Mix 1 cup of salt, 1/2 cup of cornstarch 2/3 cup of water in a pot and cook/stir over a medium heat until all the liquid has been adsorbed

Once cooked place it onto some foil to cool as it is quite hot. Once cool kneed the dough until it is soft and pliable. It will be a little bit sticky so put some wax paper or something similar down before allowing the children to use it

After the boys played with it and then finally made their handprint made me and hubby traced it with permanent red marker…thats all I could find LOL. The Dough takes about 48 hours to get hard! I love this idea from House of Baby Piranha mashaAllah..I keep them in my kitchen window πŸ™‚
